Visualizing data using maps and other tools. Bonus: 1 year 1%

About the event:

Mack will be talking about maps and putting large amounts of data onto web-based maps, how to get more information onto maps, and some other ways we can dynamically visualize data using opensource javascript libraries like http://d3js.org/ and http://raphaeljs.com/ Mack will demonstrate how you can to build a simple map from open data sources using Google Fusion Tables. Mack will also show some examples of using maps to tell stories and communicate information.

Whether using data created by your own organization, or external sources, its very important to create a context for the message you are communicating.

      I'll be there for the first Victoria event. In fact, how about we organize a road/ferry trip? :-)

    Great entry level survey of several approaches and tools for data mapping. Nice addition with the story revolving around the ethical questions inherent in mapping.

      The underground parking at the Cineplex on Abbott @ Pender has 2 hrs free parking for 'shoppers'. Just pretend to shop on your walk over here. :-) Unsure what time that lot closes though.

      Closes at 11 . LOTS of time :-)

    Learning Javascript is on my list of things to learn, but if I don't know it yet, will I be lost?

    February 4, 2013

    • Elijah van der G.

      Thanks for the clarification Mack!
